Great welcome with a warm smile. An appetizer is included with the main course. Great choice of Primis and Secondos, pastas, meats and fish. Not cheap but very good value for the money. Close to the Hauptbahnhof/Main Train Station, but away from the hubub and higher prices.

I've been to this restaurant twice. It's in the Zürich Niederdorf, close to the Limmat but in a side street. The building is not large and the restaurant is on two floors; seating is sufficient but space is not generous. The menu has a reasonable choice, the food for our group of 5 arrived quite promptly, and all were satisfied... More

This tiny place is worth a visit. Just off the main restaurant area of Zurich Very friendly service and excellent basic Italian food. The bruschetta (yes how wrong can you go with bruschetta?) were just delicious. The fish of the day, memorable. The lemon risotto was perfect. The penne alghero is delicious if you like anchovies. Tiramisu is made with... More

Other than good location in the old town, I can't say anything good aboit this eatery. If the weather is good, one can enjoy it sitting putside, but the food is in worst traditions of Zurich gastronomy: lacking imagination, very oily, soulless, homeopatic portions and wuite expensive for that. Will never go herer again.

We stayed for three days in Zurich and visited a number of restaurants for lunch and dinner. Toscana was by far the best. We were greeted by a lovely Italian waiter who spoke broken English. However we had no difficulty with ordering and we enjoyed an excellent dinner. While not an extensive wine list, this restaurant offers a range of... More

Several times I went there with friends and family and it was always a great experience. The Italian food is delicious and served by very customer oriented staff. I will definitely go back there again. Furthermore, it is centrally located. After dinner visit some of the bars around.

The reasturant is very nice, located in the Niederdorf, the old town. I have chosen tagliolini al nero di seppia, that I had several times in Italy. Unfortunately this thime I did not enjoy them: overvooked pasta and cream (?) completely spoiled the taste. I guess I made an unfortunate choice, since my friends had Paccheri alla Norma, good and...

Everything was just perfect: The starter dishes of different fish, seafood and octopus, the pasta in between, the tenderloin Angus beef as well as the dessert. The staff is not only very competent but also very friendly, even more so, if you speak a couple of words in Italian. Oh, I nearly forgot the wine list: you find everything you... More

Ate here twice on my stay in Zurich and both times the service and food were amazing. The wine was also what you would expect in an Italian restaurant. Definitely recommend it..

Wonderful meal and service. Baby octopus for starter was butter tender, fish of the day was exelant. Appears to be father and son operation.
